The Well-Sequenced Synthesizer: Exploring Music Through Interactive Design and Computation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Luisa Pereira shares the story of creating The Counterpointer and its sibling devices: from her fascination with Bach, through the first cardboard and breadboard prototypes, to algorithm design, custom PCBs, and polished fabrication.
In every era, composers and instrument builders have explored music through the lens of new technologies. The preludes and fugues in J. S. Bach’s The Well–Tempered Clavier, written in 1722, investigate the possibilities of the tempered tuning system; Wendy Carlos’ The Well–Tempered Synthesizer (1969) explores the timbric textures of Moog synthesizers. In our century, independent designers and engineers like myself have access to hardware and software platforms and digital fabrication tools that allow us to create our own intelligent devices.
